They say that the name change is not particularly important, but the truth is that this change is shocking for a company whose name was synonymous with quality for users when it was present in a mobile phone. Now Qualcomm processors already not be called equal. In fact, already or processors not be called.
While it is true that we call them processors, because in essence is what they are, nor is less certain is that they are much more than that. At the beginning were a core that was dedicated to perform operations that must execute any electronic device. At that time, yes was a processor. When they began to add cores, it was not exactly a single processor, but it was still worth that appellation. Then added additional chips, as the 4G connectivity, for example. Used the name SoC: System on Chip. But the reality is that we were still saying processors. Now Qualcomm has decided to stop calling them as well. Now, the Qualcomm Snapdragon will be “platforms”. It is logical, not only is already responsible for being the core main processor, thus now also integrate chips of mobile connectivity, NFC chips, chips of the camera, fingerprint chips… all integrated into a single component called “platform” now.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon will be high-end
Although this will not be the only change. From now on, the name Snapdragon shall be only for high-end platforms. We know that Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 would be part of this group, but it seems that which of the others is not yet clear yes will be and which are not. We can probably expect a radical change in the numbering. At the end and after the 400, 600 and 800 is just us. The rest will be called Qualcomm Mobile, but will no longer be present the Snapdragon.
And for this? Until now, buy a mobile processor Qualcomm was a synonym for quality. Or that was what we thought. Until not long ago it was. But not all phones that feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 are mobile to work well. In fact, some are basic range. Qualcomm is not giving up that your brand is quality. Conversely, you don’t want to lose that they can be identified as such. But it is undeniable that there mobile with Qualcomm that are not the best. Therefore, that now the brand that we will have to look for is the Snapdragon. The Qualcomm Mobile may still be basic, and even processors smart watches, or televisions.
